Default 2005 Hvac Blue LED's

I followed the 2005 color change guide for the Hvac and put 2 Blue LED's 10,000 mcds in each hvac housing. It seems like the green tint on the back of each housing effects the blue color more then the red. Anyone have any success with blue LED's or getting rid of the green? On a side note, I can help any Nor Cali-ers with the red Hvac if then need some soldering done.

When I did mine (red) I noticed that the color was much better after removing those clear plastic cylinders that run along the inside of the tube behind the dials. Try removing them... It might help.

Removing the cylinders did nothing?
Is the problem that the blue is coming out with too much of a green tint? Or is the color blotchy? As far as I could tell, there is no easy way of removing the green, as all of the plastic is green, it's not just a film.

seems like your led's aren't getting enough power perhaps. check the voltages again and your resister ohms. advice: they are 10000 mcds, try just one in each housing and see what it looks like. if they are like most blue led's and go from 2.9-3.7 volts or something like that three with a small resistor ~47-68 ohm should get you some noticable blue. let me know how it goes.
